Panoramic View of Kingsdown and Oldstairs Bay, Kent, with Deal and Ramsgate in the background. Kingsdown is a village immediately to the south of Walmer, itself south of Deal, on the English Channel coast of Kent. Kingsdown is located at the northern end of the White cliffs of Dover; the village itself sits below the cliff, with some outlying buildings and a holiday camp on top or midway up. The beach and downs around the village are important for migrating birds and insects, and for rare plants. The beach and cliffs are part of the Site of Special Scientific Interest that stretches to Folkestone.
